I swore I would never do it. I promised myself that I would never do a podcast. I just didn’t have the time to learn how, or the equipment. Oh I had no problem recording and sending in comments to the Scifi Diner Podcast and to a few others when, and if I thought I had something intelligent to contribute. As time went on, I was invited to be a guest commentator on the Diner’s Rewind show where we talked about films. It was great fun. But still I kept telling myself that I would not do, or be on as a host of a podcast.
Never say never.
Never ended about a month ago when I was contacted by fellow sci-fi fan and poscaster David Moulton with an idea that really got me thinking. Then Scott Hertzog of the Scifi Diner was also included in on David’s project and it was the birth of the Dune Saga Podcast. So now I am a regular on a podcast. What do I think about that? Well I am excited and honored that anyone would consider me worthy to be included in this project.
Basically, on the Dune Saga Podcast, David, Scott, and I will be commenting on the books of the Dune series in chronological order, as opposed to in the order that they were released. The first book we will be talking about is Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson’s Butlerian Jihad. We will be recording monthly so that listeners to the Dune Saga Podcast can have time to read and comment.
You can find a complete list of the books we will be looking at on our website. You can also find us on Facebook as well as Twitter (@dunesagapodcast). To learn more about your hosts see this page on our website.
Our first episode is available to listen to embedded on our website, or wherever podcasts are available. It is an introductory episode in which we introduce ourselves and explain in depth what we wish to accomplish.
Well, there it is…
Or, if you prefer…
May Shai-Hulud clear the path before you.
